Review request 19kyu

Hello. I’m a 19kyu but I believe even though the opponent says 20Kyu, he is much stronger than that upon reviewing his profile and matches. Doesn’t matter. Can someone point out some obvious things i could have improved?

Here you go,, the most obviously bad thing you did was to take a small amount of territory in exchange for giving your opponent a lot of influence, it is not that he was much better than 20k, it is that you did nothing to stop his plan.

I did one, too. As the above mentioned already, you gave black too much influence for not enough territory. Leaving yourself the ability to develop into the center is crucial in winning the board, not the local position.
